Is a violation of a namespace conformance requirement analagous
to not being well-formed XML, a "fatal" error? Or is it instead
like violating a VC, a relative wrist-slap from which processors
are required to "at user option" continue? Or are such violations
perhaps in that other "nonportable, you can't rely on anything"
category of error? (E.g. the "for interop with SGML" issues.)
I'd concur, one can't "rely" on any particular integration scheme
today or in the forseeable future ... that was the sort of answer
that needed nailing down up front. Today I see different answers
from multiple vendors.
